End game - Part 2

Now, back to the 9x9 boards.
Is this the end?

It looks as if white has a big win. However...



If you surround too large an area, Your opponent can "invade".

Black jumps into the white's area. Because there is plenty of room to dodge, black can build a group inside if he plays well.

This may be hard because white has a strong wall on the left of that area.

If black succeeds, he can reduce much of white's territory.


Although it's far from the end game, white has better prospects.
Can you see why?
